WWE Stars Scared Of A Mass Firing
WrestleNomics reported that Wrestlemania taking place could result in the promotion losing approximately $22 million. Over the last several weeks, WWE has put on a number of shows without a live audience, and there is a strong expectation that the company will fail to meet initial revenue expectations.
WrestlingNews.co reported that one of their sources informed them that WWE stars were seriously worried about being let go by the promotion and that AEW was not a viable option either, as Tony Khan would be looking to save money right now as well.
“I think guys know they can’t depend on AEW as their safety net because they are going through their issues with cancelled shows. This will be tough for a lot of guys and for a lot of people in [the wrestling business] overall.”
